Arsenal linked to Chelsea target Moises Caicedo, Newcastle want Anthony Gordon and Tottenham keen on Pedro Porro – January transfers that could still be done before deadline day

    Just one week remains of the January transfer window, but there are still plenty of deals that could be tied up by then.

    Chelsea’s hijack of Arsenal transfer target Mykhailo Mudryk and their £16million loan move for Atletico Madrid’s Joao Felix stole headlines at the start of the month.

    Meanwhile, Netherlands international Cody Gakpo’s arrival at Liverpool and Leandro Trossard’s move to Arsenal from Brighton were other notable signings, with the Gunners also completing a move for Jakub Kiwior.

    Manchester United have also brought in a temporary replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo who signed for Al-Nassr this January, bringing in Burnley striker Wout Weghorst on loan.

    But whilst there’s been plenty of big names making the switch this winter, the January transfer window isn’t over yet.

    There are a number of deals that have the potential to materialise at both ends of the Premier League.

    Relegation candidates Everton are still in the market in their fight for survival, whilst Arsenal are still trying to bolster their squad in the push for the Premier League title.

    So who could still make the switch before deadline day? talkSPORT.com takes a look…

    Arsenal – Ivan Fresneda

    talkSPORT understands the Gunners are also keen on signing 18-year-old right-back.

    He started out at Real Madrid but is now playing for Real Valladolid, a club run by Ronaldo.

    Mikel Arteta is said to want to get the deal done, as he looks to add more young talent to his squad.

    Arsenal – Weston McKennie

    Mikel Arteta is known to be keen to bring in a new midfielder to ease the burden on Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka.

    Arsenal have made their interest known to Juventus star McKennie’s representatives, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, while Tottenham have long-term interest in the player.

    No offer has gone in for the 24-year-old, but Juve are open to selling him should they receive an offer between £17m and £22m.

    Brighton – Mykola Matviyenko

    Brighton are looking to sign the Shakhtar Donetsk defender, talkSPORT understands.

    Ukraine International Matviyenko – who is currently in London with his family after being given time off by his club – played under Seagulls manager Roberto De Zerbi at Shakhtar. 

    Di Zerbi is desperate to bring in a left-sided centre-back and has identified the Ukrainian as a possible option, though the south coast side do not want to pay Shakhtar’s £22m asking price.

    Brighton – Yasin Ayari

    Brighton are in talks to sign the Swedish midfielder for around £5m.

    The Daily Mail reports that the 19-year-old currently plays for Swedish outfit AIK and has two Sweden caps to his name.

    He is expected to travel to England later this week once a fee is finalised and his work permit sorted.

    Chelsea – Enzo Fernandez

    The Blues initially walked away from the table earlier this month after being priced out of a move for the £112million-rated World Cup winner.

    But according to Record, the west London outfit are still keen on bringing the 22-year-old to Stamford Bridge.

    The Portuguese news outfit has claimed that Chelsea remain hopeful a deal can be reached with Benfica.

    Chelsea –  Moises Caicedo

    Chelsea are weighing-up an improved bid for the Brighton star.

    The Blues have tested the Seagulls with an initial offer of £55m for the Ecuadorian midfielder.

    However, the Daily Mail report that Chelsea are considering making an improved offer for the player, while it is also claimed Arsenal are keen.

    Tottenham – Arnaut Danjuma

    Danjuma, who joined Villarreal from Bournemouth, had looked set for Goodison Park – but Frank Lampard’s sacking appears to have changed that.

    Now it seems he is Tottenham bound. The 25-yer-old Netherlands international joined Villarreal for £21.3million in 2021. In his first season with the LaLiga side, he scored 16 goals and registered four assists in 34 games. This season he has scored six goals in 17 appearances.

    Everton – Hakim Ziyech

    Guardian journalist Fabrizio Romano says Chelsea are willing to discuss bids for the player, with many clubs are keen on signing him in the final days of the transfer window.

    Everton and Roma are among the clubs said to be considering a move for the star who impressed with Morocco at the World Cup.

    The Toffees are understood to be interested in a loan move in the forward.

    Leicester – Tete

    The Brazilian winger is on loan at Lyon from Mudryk’s former club Shakhtar Donetsk.

    The French side, though, have an option to sign him for £17.5million but Leicester are keeping tabs on him.

    According to the Daily Mail, it is unclear if Lyon are willing to activate the clause – leading the player to eye up a move to the Premier League.

    Tete has featured in 17 top-flight matches this season – chipping in with six goals and two assists.

    Newcastle – Anthony Gordon

    The Magpies are considering a bid for the winger before the transfer window shuts, talkSPORT understands.

    The 21-year-old was benched for Everton’s most recent defeat to West Ham and Newcastle could offer him an exit route.

    Dan Ashworth, the club’s sporting director, is a big fan, and manager Eddie Howe hinted last week when Chris Wood went to Nottingham Forest that they want an attacking player who would excited the fans.

    Tottenham – Pedro Porro

    If Spurs make one signing in the January transfer window, it’s likely to be the Spanish right wing-back.

    Antonio Conte might already have Emerson Royal, Matt Doherty and Djed Spence at his disposal but ex-Man City man Porro is still a top target.

    Sporting Lisbon want the Premier League side to match his £40m release clause but Tottenham hope to get a deal done for a little lower, especially with Man City able to reclaim the player for £15m.
